Narrative and Storytelling
Explain the difference between a film’s story and a film’s plot. Use a specific film to illustrate your point of view. In the film you chose, are the events presented chronologically or are they presented non-linearly? What might a filmmaker’s intentions be when he or she chooses to present events chronologically or in a non-linear order? How are elements like character development or foreshadowing used differently between the two storytelling methods?
Your initial post should be at least 150 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7.
